Ok, I made some progress. I re-installed kicad and made sure I had the github module installed.
Made /usr/local/share/kicad/modules and made that owner nobody mode777, got the footprints synced.
jon-HP-Compaq-Elite-8300-SFF modules # pwd
jon-HP-Compaq-Elite-8300-SFF modules # ls -l | wc -l
I've somehow managed to get the schematic symbol for the kingbright 5x7 LED module TC07-111XWA in the schematic, but I cant get find the footprint.
I found stuff here, this looks useful - cant it be part of the github component library ?
*infact It should be TC07-11SEKWA, but that was the closest I could find.
I cant seem to find many 16 pin outlines, the 74HC595 I am using is SOIC16 I think.
